Thabeet Vs Hayes

The tallest, starting, C in the league and the shortest starting C in the league.

7'3 vs 6'6

Crazy but I think Thabeet will do surprisingly well.

Doubt it. Thabeet is

Doubt it. Thabeet is getting his 2nd star after being in the D League fora while... Hayes is like a bolder, it's nearly impossible to move him... If you watch Rockets' games, you'd know just how good hayes is defensively.

This is why you send a guy

This is why you send a guy to the D-League when he's struggled a bit. Thabeet got some confidence, and played fairly well (by the numbers, at least). In the last two games, 18 points, 19 rebounds and six blocks. Oh, and 8-of-13 from the field.

I'm not saying he should have been picked ahead of Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry and company. I'm just saying everyone needed to give the guy a chance to acclimate himself.

Jordan Hill has opened some eyes with increased playing time as well. You can't tell who is going to be a bust based on half a season. We're still at a point where any player could wind up a bust and any player could wind up a great pick.

Not a bad couple of games

Not a bad couple of games for Thabeet.. Can he keep it up? Hope so because once Zach Randolph leaves, Marc will go back to PF and Hasheem at C.. Probably the tallest lineup in the league.. 6'9" SF, 7ft PF and a 7'3" Center... Wow... That's scary

Yeah Hill has rebounded well

Yeah Hill has rebounded well and is scoring, defensively I wonder about him though he doesn't block any shots despite being 6'10 and long. He probably needs to add some weight to his frame too. Definately its too early to tell considering he didn't have much playing time in NY.
